Embarcadero has announced some great growth numbers of Delphi and C++Builder in 2011: 54% growth over 2010 in worldwide sales. Considering the 15% growth of previous years, it means the Delphi sales have double since Embarcadero took over the "CodeGear" business unit from Borland. I have to say that as a re-seller, I saw similar numbers, so this is not completely surprising.

In the press release there isn't much else in terms of numbers, only a general description of the relevance of the Mac and iOS ecosystem in companies. There is also a summary of the last quarter events, which saw over 10,000 registered attendees.

Well done Delphi (and Embarcadero): Once again, rumors of your death were greatly exaggerated. This sale numbers are a nice birthday present!
